digg_url = 'http://digg.com/arts_culture/Top_10_Greenest_toy_cars_for_the_holidays'; It's almost Christmas, so I compiled a list of the top 10 green toy cars for you.

In their third annual Bottom Line Design Awards for ingenuity in business success, Business 2.0 and Frog Design have awarded the H-racer hydrogen fuel-cell powered toy as one of "the 11 coolest new products on the Planet." The toy car, created by Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies, comes complete with its own solar powered hydrogen refuelling station to provide a truly renewable energy solution. Batteries are definitely not included.
